Clustering as one of the main branches of data mining, has gained an important place in the different applied fields. On the other hand, Peer-to-Peer (P2P) networks with features such as simplicity, low cost communication, and high availability resources, have gained a worldwide popularity in the present days. In P2P network, high volumes of data are distributed between dispersed data sources. In such distributed systems, sending data to a central site is not possible, due to processing, storage and handling costs. This issue makes the need for specific methods for distributed data clustering in P2P networks. This paper makes a technical review of distributed data clustering approaches in P2P network, to understand the research trends in this area.
